They were forecast 36 hours of drying conditions, which they
have had, and the CLA hoped that this would have been enough to dry
out the waterlogged ground. Unfortunately, the benefit has been
negligible and, as such, it would prove impossible to allow the
3,000-4,000 vehicle movements still required to complete the
remainder of the show build.
The CLA has made every effort over the past few weeks to protect
the integrity of the ground to enable the event to go ahead. The
weather forecast is predicting significant further rainfall in the
next 48 hours, and the situation looks set to only deteriorate from
this point on.
This knowledge combined with increased health and safety risks
during the build and for the public during the three days of the
Game Fair has led the CLA to the point where they do not believe
they can deliver the show.
Strutt & Parker is a corporate partner of the Game Fair
Theatre and Game Fair Radio. We were looking forward to hosting our
annual drinks party from our stand and giving show visitors a
chance to chat to our property consultants on all aspects of land
and rural property ownership. If you would like more information on
